Unlike national holidays, Family Day in Canada has different names and even different dates, depending on the province which celebrates or ignores it. Canada may pride itself on its diversity of people, cultural heritage and ethnic backgrounds; but we bring it to a new level in our treatment of this February holiday.
One Family Friendly Writing Tip
I jumped at writing this article early in January although the holiday waits until mid-February. That's faster than my usual schedule.
Why the rush? I happened to read an ad promoting a Family Day activity just this past week. I thought, "If those people are already advertising, then I'd better get my article out in front of my readers".
So this writing tip is simple. If you see "your" topic being raised before you were ready, then you've nearly missed your opportunity. Be early, rather than late, to chime in with your unique viewpoints. After all, your readers deserve to find your best work, rather than someone else's, the first time they look for that information. And they might not bother looking a second time!
